Guwahati (Assam) [India], Feb 24 (ANI): A Guwahati Court on Monday extended the Police custody of Sharjeel Imam for another four days here.
Earlier, Sharjeel Imam, who allegedly raised the 'cut-off Assam' slogan, was sent to a 4-day police remand by a local court here on Thursday.
He was one of the key organisers of Shaheen Bagh protests in New Delhi.
Imam, a research scholar of the Jawaharlal Nehru University, had allegedly made certain seditious statements like "Assam should be cut off from rest of India" during the anti-CAA protests held at Shaheen Bagh.
Taking cognizance of the comment and after verifying the authenticity of the audio clip, the Assam government had reportedly registered a case against him. (ANI)
